Liposuction or liposculpture

If you have excess fat localised at the hips, outer thighs (trochanteric region), the inner thighs or knees, liposuction, also known as lipoaspiration or liposculpture, can certainly improve your figure.

Botox® treatments are performed on an outpatient basis after a consultation. This allows your cosmetic surgeon to establish your personalized treatment plan with you.

Botox® injection does not change your facial expression. The effect of botulinum toxin lasts for several months. It is therefore advisable to renew the injections. The areas of the face where Botox® is particularly effective are:

  • forehead wrinkles
  • crow's feet (around the eyes)
  • frown lines (the lines between the eyebrows)
  • fine lines on the upper lip
  • the folds at the corners of the lips.


Your liposuction is usually performed as outpatient surgery under local aesthetic or general anaesthesia, as required by the extent of the areas to be treated.

Your plastic surgeon will perform tiny incisions, into which micro-cannulas will be introduced that gently aspire excess fat.

Before a stable result is obtained and post-operative swelling and bruising disappear, you will need to wait several weeks. During these four to six weeks, you will also need to wear a compression jacket so that your skin regains its pleasing appearance.

Among the instructions to be followed after your liposuction, you will need to avoid exposure to the sun for as long as haematomas remain. You will see the final results of your liposuction after three to six months.

Every surgical procedure can involve a certain amount of risk and complications that the patient must accept; your plastic surgeon will make it his or her duty to reduce the rate of occurrence by choosing the technique best suited to your medical situation. Complications such as bleeding, wound or prosthesis infections and poor healing, although relatively rare, can occur with any type of surgery.
